Konemitsu has been revealed as the first new fighter of Season 4 Tekken 7. This is a character that hasn’t been seen since Tekken Revolution, which was released in 2013.
Excluding the sub-elements, Kunimitsu will not be playable since Tekken 2. In fact, it’s been more than 25 years since Kunimitsu appeared in the Tekken headline in 1995.
Since it’s been such a long time, it’s no surprise to see Kunimitsu sporting a fresh look. Although she still wore her unmistakable mask, she was also spotted without it during the trailer.
Konemitsu tends to be known in the Tekken series for its speed and agility. This comes at the expense of weak power and range in its attacks.
It should be noted that Kunimitsu in Tekken 7 is actually the original Kunimitsu daughter who appeared in Tekken and Tekken 2. This new Kunimitsu is apparently not blind, unlike her mother.
Tekken fans will also be able to hit the Vermillion Gates stage sometime in the fourth quarter of 2020 alongside Kunimitsu. Exact release dates are not yet available.
Later in the first quarter of 2021, Tekken 7 Season 4 Pass ticket owners will also gain access to another character and another stage. It’s also possible that these characters and stages were available individually without a Season 4 ticket.
Finally, Season 4 will introduce new moves for all characters, “Tekken Prowess”, an updated user interface, a revamped rating system, and upgrades to online gameplay. These updates will be available to everyone and free of charge.
“Tekken Prowess” is basically a measure of the player’s overall skill in Tekken 7. This value is not limited to the skill of the player with his main character.
